    Maj Gen RK Gupte

    Maj Gen RK Gupte was a highly professional officer who had an outstanding career. Technically very sound, dedicated and forward looking. He was a thorough gentleman, very friendly and helpful indeed. He always measured his words, kept calm and composed but gave his views candidly.

    I can say these words because he was our instructor in Degree Engineering Course and subsequently my GSO2 in Sigs Dte. In later years, when I was CSO Southern Command as he was, we reaped the benefits of his long term planning, covering immense area of the desert and schemes set forth for static communications over very long distances in desolate areas.

    The Corps and the Army should remember his services and laud them. What the Corps is today is due to hard work, planning and forward thinking of officers like Maj Gen RK Gupte.

    May God rest the departed soul in peace and give strength to the family and friends to bear the immense loss.
